Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by justin wishart (New Zealand), Nov 1, 2005 at 08:31

On reading the above article about the hypocrisy of christians who critisise Islam, I nearly stood up and cheered. I consider myself an agnostic with an Anglican upbringing, however the sensible and balanced views of the muslim writer of this article were refreshingly honest.

The comments were also factually correct in respect to the crusades and other historical horrors by Christians against Islam and other societies. Thankyou for your views, and I certainly will take issue with people who ignorantly attack your faith. I have no problem defending peaceful people who have been persecuted by western imperialism for centuries.
